You can’t just wing it anymore. Many things have changed since you first said you wanted to become a fireman, an astronaut, a veterinarian or a nun. This is especially true in the field of business continuity.
Business continuity is not just concerned with IT recovery anymore. Supply chain management is critical to sustaining company operations. How do we determine what is or isn’t critical? Shouldn’t we bring these issues to the attention of our C-Level management?
These are just some of the issues confronting BCP Managers and most practitioners today had to learn how to handle these things along the way. As time goes by, trying to cover all bases regarding continuity has become more and more complicated. Instead of learning while working the job, a little bit of education to start would go a long way to getting ahead of what needs to be done.
